Plantar Fasciitis - Heel Pain

Heel pain is generally termed Plantar Fasciitis or Plantar Fasciosis. This is a very generic term. Heel pain can be more complicated and needs a correct diagnosis before embarking upon treatment.

Recommendation: At the clinic, you will receive a diagnosis and management plan at your first consultation. 95% of cases resolve with time but with a treatment plan you will get better. The practice uses evidence-based science to treat your heel pain. We regularly liaise with radiologists, foot orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists and sports physicians that we can “workshop” your case if it is an atypical case of heel pain.

What is the difference between Plantar Fasciitis & a bruised heel or heel bursitis?

Bruised Heel

A bruised heel is an injury to the fat pad that protects the heel bone. It is sometimes called “policeman’s heel”.

The cause:

We have a range of interventions to help de-load the heel. Bring the shoes you regularly wear for sport so we can check them for suitability and ensure they are providing cushioning.

Heel bursitis

Retrocalcaneal bursitis happens when the bursae around your heel become inflamed.

A bursae is a fluid-filled sacs that form around your joints. The bursae at your heel bone can be either under the heel or at the back of the heel behind your Achilles tendon.

The best way to manage it is to wear cushioned heel cups, comfortable shoes and use topical anit-inflammatory gels judiciously. If that does not help make an appointment and let our podiatry team make a proper diagnosis and implement a treatment solution.
